Course Summary

The number of people over 65 years of age is growing and expected to expand significantly over the coming decades in the United States. A larger number of older people will be requiring and looking for health care from a variety of sources. This creates an environment in which specialists in geriatric health are highly sought after to deal with the specific and various issues that affect an aging population. Older individuals are highly likely to have chronic health issues that require long-term care, either in a specialized facility or in the home. A proactive approach to managing older individuals’ health is necessary to ensure the highest quality of health care is available. This course also covers alcoholism and addiction in the elderly.
